Hi everyone, I hope you have had a nice summer. Two new conferences for you this month. Both of these are excellent if you are interested in orphan care, have adopted or thinking about adoption. See below.
Answering the Call
September 11, 5:00-8:00 pm
Answering the Call is an opportunity for you to explore how God may be calling you to serve the needs of children in crisis locally and globally. We are all called in different ways, whether to be adoptive or foster parents, to provide temporary safe housing, or to serve through mentoring, mission field work, or just being a support to families going through an adoption or foster care placement. This evening is a chance to explore the many types of ways there are for you to become involved. CHILDCARE IS PROVIDED. DINNER INCLUDED
Sessions include: Introduction to Adoption, Foster Care, Foreign Mission Opportunities, Local Service Opportunities, Older Children, Special Needs Adoption, SAFE Families, Becoming An Adoptive Father.
Empowered to Connect Conference
The Empowered to Connect Conference will be September 23-24 in Nashville, TN. This 2-day conference sponsored by Show Hope is for adoptive and foster parents, ministry leaders and professionals. It is designed to help them better understand how to connect with children from hard places in order to help them heal and become all that God desires for them to be.
